The $83 million transaction is expected to close by late December or early 2018, subject to approval by the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission (NHPUC), FERC, and other required approvals.

The hydroelectric assets purchase agreement with Hull Street Energy consists of nine facilities with approximately 68.2 MW of power generation capacity.

The plants are located in Manchester, Bristol, West Stewartstown, Franklin, Bow, Gorham, Hooksett, Hillsborough and Berlin, New Hampshire.

Hull Street Energy, a private equity firm that invests in power generation assets and related businesses, plans to acquire the facilities as part of its strategy to build a significant presence in the North American power sector.

Upon completion of this transaction, Hull Street Energy affiliates will own approximately 531 MW of power generation assets in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Western United States.

Earlier this year the firm acquired five hydroelectric facilities in Massachusetts that had once been owned by Eversource’s predecessor, Northeast Utilities.

With the addition of the New Hampshire Eversource fleet, Hull Street Energy’s hydroelectric plant portfolio will exceed 85 MW.
